Does anyone else experience problems when they try to sync their iPhones/iPads to iTunes over WiFi?

On the odd occasion when I sync my iPhone to iTunes over WiFi, it drops out and I get an error message saying the disk cannot be found. Other times I get -50 errors.. Whatever that is. So I have to plug my iPhone in using the USB cable.

This doesn't seem to happen with iPad, just my iPhone which is weird.

It could be my WiFi network which might be dodgy, but its just annoying have to plug the device in knowing there is WiFi sync.

I have had it a couple of times, just switch wifi off on your iPhone and back on again, and fingers crossed it should clear it up.

Try 'forgetting' your home network and then reconnect. This has solved flaky wifi for me in the past

I've had similar problems but just click sync in iTunes and the wifi thing seems to sort itself out.
